I’ve been searching for a series of writings I’d done in reference to this passage of scripture a few years back in hopes to share with you, but have not been able to do so. I think they were lost in the great PC crash of 2012 which caused me to forever switch to Apple products in my home. Since I’m unable to find the original writings I’ve decided to just begin again. It will be interesting to see where Holy Spirit leads me with this, my favorite passage of scripture. For today I’ll just are the scripture with you, but beginning this coming week I’ll begin sharing a new series of writings on the topic.
My Favorite Scripture: 1Corinthians chapter 13 in completion
1 Corinthains Chapter 13 (KJV)
Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.
Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
Charity never faileth:but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away. For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.
When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child:but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face:now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity
I never cease to amazed by the depth of truth to be found in the word of God. I’m excited to see where I’ll be taken in understanding this passage of scripture while writing about it the second time around.
Be strengthened * Be Encouraged * Be Blessed!
